Local law enforcers have made what is being suggested to be a major drug bust on the sister island of Virgin Gorda.
The bust was made during a joint operation between the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) and Her Majesty’s Customs last Thursday, October 17.
In a media release on Monday, police said, “a large quantity of cocaine was discovered and seized by the RVIPF” when they searched a vessel shortly after it had arrived on Virgin Gorda.
Law enforcers did not specify the amount of drugs seized nor did they make any arrests “as yet”.
“Inquiries are ongoing in this matter,” the RVIPF said.
They added: “Persons with information relating to this or any other crime are asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Department through the access number 311. Persons can also call the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 284-368-9339.”
Police have said all information will be “treated with discretion and confidentiality will be assured”.
